I love the various mystery/detective series shown on the PBS and Knowledge networks. Most of them are British series, like Frost, Sherlock Holmes and Miss Marple.

I particularly like Miss Marple, not so much for the mysteries, but the ways in which she “helps” law enforcement officials — who most often think she is a busybody but always end up appreciating her assistance: she usually solves the crimes for them but is happy to let them think they did the solving. I can’t help but think how Miss Marple would have fared in the Internet/social media age, yes?

Smiles . . .

How about you? Who are your favourite sleuths on TV?
